Several members of the department will give talks, present posters, and receive awards.
The talk is titled “The prosody of Kaqchikel person marking,” and the poster is titled “A phonetic study of Uspanteko accent.” Both are joint work with Robert Henderson.
The lecture, titled “Sound Symbolism in Australian Languages: Phonetic Iconicity Re-examined,” will be given at the Dartmouth College Linguistics Department on Thursday, October 16th.
The paper, titled “Learning General Phonological Rules From Distributional Information: A Computational Model,” appears in the journal Cognitive Science.
The award is part of a collaborative NSF grant with linguists at UC Santa Cruz.
